Patient Information

If you suffer from problems related to varicose and spider veins, you’re not alone. More than 25 million Americans suffer from some form of venous disorder. People often want professional medical help for cosmetic treatment and pain relief. The ACP has a wealth of information for patients researching conditions, treatments, terminology, and answers. Explore our website and resources available, then talk to your medical provider about your options.

Advancements in the understanding and treatment of vein disease and disorders has led to less invasive cosmetic and medical treatments, and a large increase in the availability of clinic-based treatments for spider and varicose veins. The widespread availability of less invasive treatments means that vein conditions can be treated without a lot of the negative impacts that patients used to experience.

The ACP knows how important it is for patients to understand their medical conditions, which is why we published the patient resource book Healthy Veins…Healthy Legs, an educational guide for patients who want to learn more about vein disorders and appropriate treatments. If you want to learn more about venous disorders, you can order the book here. You can also use this website to learn more about conditions, causes, and treatments of vein disease and disorders.
